The I have a dream speech has been etched into the collective memory of most Americans. It’s an undoubtedly amazing speech that serves as constant inspiration for the US and the rest of the world, but it’s important to note that is only a fraction of his words, work, and impact during the Civil Rights Movement.
Here is MLK’s famous “I’ve been to the mountaintop” speech delivered in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 3, 1968, the day before he was assassinated. It’s an amazing speech (full text here), noteworthy for numerous ideas. However it’s probably most famous for speaking on his own morality.
